Firstly, if it's a parallel line what should be its slope ?

Okey we can write lines either two forms: ax^2+bx+c or y = mx+n In first form the slope will be -a/b and in second form m is the slope. If we organize the equation we get 3x-y=-3 3x=y+3 y=3x-3 So slope should be 3.

Sorry it shoul be 3x=y-3 in second step Then y=3x+3

so how do you find the answer to the problem?

Okey moving on we found that the slope should be 3. So as I said before you can write a line like y=3x+n because we know the slope but we don't know what exact line is. It says line passes through the point (4,-2) It should be true for our line 4 is x and -2 is y (x,y) -2=3*4+n -2=12+n n=-14 The line is y=3x-14
